Living In Laurel
Located about 15 miles outside Billings, Laurel, MT is an undeveloped rural area just waiting to be populated. The rolling hills offer breathtaking scenery to everyone who settles in this inviting area. This small community is home to three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. In addition, the oil refinery, the school district is one of the largest employers in the area.
Downtown Laurel is a surprisingly happening place. During the summer, there is a weekly farmer’s market on Wednesday afternoons. The home baked treats found here will take you back in time to your grandma’s kitchen. This local flavor is the perfect addition to the diverse selection of family owned shops and restaurants that can be found throughout downtown Laurel.
Life in Laurel
Laurel’s main attraction is the scenery. Residents of Laurel have a million dollar view right outside their front door. The scenery includes gently rolling hills and broad, sweeping Yellowstone River. The city of Laurel offers tennis and basketball courts, skateboarding, and playground equipment. The area immediately surrounding Laurel is widely known as one of the best places for camping, fishing, and swimming. If that is not enough for you, one of the most highly regarded national parks – Yellowstone – is just 114 miles down the road. Surprisingly, Laurel is also the site of one of the largest 4th of July parades and fireworks displays in the area. In addition to the community display, individuals and groups enjoy purchasing (legally!) and deploying their own fireworks for 4th of July and New Year’s. The dark night sky over the uninhabited areas of Laurel is the perfect backdrop for a spectacular fireworks display.

Laurel is home to thousands of acres of undeveloped land. The real estate in Laurel consists of an assortment of building ready lots as well as some already populated farmland. The timber and rock formations found on the land in Laurel make this property a sound investment as well as a beautiful place to build a home. Many of the homes built in Laurel are log cabins located on several dozen acres of land. Some larger homesteads include a few hundred acres, large homes, and horse barns. These barns tend to be well equipped with haylofts, tack rooms, grain bins, and several stalls. The majestic pine trees and rolling hills make Laurel an unforgettable place for a horseback trail ride. Smaller lots are also available. The 1-3 acre lots are the perfect size to custom build your family’s next home.
